Chorley man convicted of 'flashing while balancing pie on head' will challenge his conviction
A man who was found guilty of flashing at a road junction after dancing around with a pie on his head is to appeal his case.
The trial of Steven Gaskell went viral after magistrates convicted him of the bizarre offence outside The Elephant and Castle public house in Adlington, near Chorley.
The 32-year-old, of Lewis Close, Adlington, denied a charge of exposure with intent to cause alarm or distress, but was found guilty by the magistrates’ bench.
He was sentenced in December to a curfew and was ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register for five years.
Gaskell is now pursuing an appeal.
A hearing date has been set for April 9 at Preston Crown Court.
